If you were charged with any type of federal fraud in Texas, contact our attorney at Peter Barrett: Dallas Criminal Defense Attorney and put more than 25 years of criminal defense experience on your side.
The Reality Of Fraud
Most of us have, at some point, been victims of fraud. It can happen when someone asks for your personal information, and you give it to them in good faith. In those cases, the act is intentional. In other situations, criminal fraud might simply be a mistake of fact that needs to be examined more closely.
If fraud involves a federal agency, such as the Postal Service, the Internal Revenue Service or Social Security, the charges can become much more severe and will require an especially skillful criminal defense attorney. Types of federal fraud include:
- Identity theft
- Mail fraud
- Insurance fraud
- Securities fraud
- Wire fraud
- Bankruptcy fraud
- Tax evasion
Not all who are charged with fraud had criminal intent. For instance, some people make mistakes when filing their taxes that can be construed as willfully misleading. Even if you know you are innocent, however, you still need a good lawyer. Contact our firm to protect your rights and your freedom.
